We’re halfway through the week people, which means it’s time for another edition of Example Site Wednesday.

Today’s site is from a technology support company in Las Vegas, Nevada called Technician Platoon. What stands out most about this site is how well this Webs user has employed layout and organization to convey a good deal of information in an effective way.

We’ve talked before about how imagery can be very important on a website to create visual interest. The exception to that rule, however, is the company whose industry does not lend itself to good imagery. The options in that situation always seem to come down to a site packed with unattractive or irrelevant images, or a small business website that is essentially just a Word document hosted online.

Technician Platoon has avoided both of these pitfalls by organizing their information and typography in a way that still feels visually interesting without adding a bunch of clutter.

On the homepage, they use a one-column layout at the top, and a 3-column layout toward the bottom to create interest:

On the page that details their services, they use tinted boxes to organize the information in such a way that it is easy to digest.

Techniques like these are a great way for small businesses that don’t have access to professional photographers or designers to create a website that is effective, attractive and easy to use.

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with
    it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or
    two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    Do you mind if I quote a couple of your posts as long as I provide credit and sources back
    to your blog? My blog site is in the very same area of
    interest as yours and my visitors would definitely benefit from a lot of the information
    you provide here. Please let me know if this alright with you.
    Appreciate it!

    If you know of any please share. Thank you!
